    We started in 1995 with one shaved ice business and one employee. Today, years later, we are a leading shaved ice equipment and supply distributor, proudly serving hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers worldwide! In addition, our products have been featured in The Wall Street Journal and TV Guide. You may have seen us headlined on Good Morning America, The Oxygen Network and CNN. Our proudest achievement was the distinguished award of “Best Overall” by The Wall Street Journal. The Wall Street Journal stated that “[our products] seem to rise above the rest.” This award paid tribute to our excellent shaved ice and snow cone products, superior customer service and unmatched syrup flavors.

    Because of our hands-on experience in the shaved ice and snow cone industry, we are able to offer you the most affordable and unrivaled shaved ice machines, snow cone machines, flavor concentrates, syrups, carts, trailers and accessories available. We have spent years refining our products in order to meet our customers’ highest expectations.

    Our shaved ice and snow cone machines are made to the highest standards in order to produce mountains of fine, fluffy and powdery snow. We have the largest selection of shaved ice and snow cone machines available on the market. We offer many different models of shaved ice machines including block ice shavers and cube ice shavers. We also offer several snow cone machines to choose from, including electric and battery powered options.

    We have searched the world over to find the truest and most mouth-watering ingredients for our syrups. In fact, we have over 95 of the best flavors in the shaved ice and snow cone business. We traveled into the kitchens of some of the top flavor distributors and handpicked each flavor concentrate. This means we can sell you premium shaved ice or snow cone concentrates and syrups that we know will create repeat customers for you.

    Not only do we have the largest selection of machines and flavors, we also stock a full line of shaved ice supplies such as serving bottles, mixing containers, speed racks, bottle washers and more. Also, don’t forget to check out our serving supplies such as styrofoam cups, flower cups (witches hats), spoon straws and snow cone cups. Our selection is great and our prices are even better!

    At and, we stand behind everything that we sell and guarantee you will be fully satisfied with all of our products. Please review our return policy in the event you have any questions.

    We have taken our years of experience and compiled this complete “How To” manual to help you open and operate your own shaved ice or snow cone business.
